Stay Healthy This Winter With the Help of Chiropractic

woman with coldWhen the temperatures dip this time of year, health issues often arise. From experiencing ski-related injuries to getting a cold or the flu, many people struggle health-wise in the winter. Did you know that natural chiropractic care could help to keep you healthy? Here are some ways:

Combats Cold and Flu

Sniffles. Runny nose. Body aches. Fever. This time of year, many people are sidelined by seasonal sickness. While over-the-counter medications can temporarily relieve symptoms, they just mask them. Chiropractic care can bolster your immune system so you can fend off colds and the flu. Chiropractic also can promote better sleep, which can help you to stay healthier.

Boosts Mood

During the winter months, many people experience depression or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Those with SAD, or the “winter blues,” experience symptoms of depression in the winter when there’s not as much sunlight. As chiropractic care stimulates the nervous system, people can feel better mentally.

Prevents Muscle Stiffness

It’s common for many people to experience a decrease in muscle flexibility and an increase in stiffness in the winter. Chiropractic care can keep your spine aligned so your muscles can move easily.

Decreases Body Aches

If you have arthritis, the cold temperatures can make your joints more painful. Being in pain can lead to additional discomfort and a decline in mobility. Chiropractic adjustments can allow you to move easily without stiffness or pain.

Addresses Sports Injuries

Skiing and snowboarding are, of course, two of the most popular winter sports in New Zealand. Beginners in these sports often experience musculoskeletal injuries. If you sustain an injury while engaging in your favourite snow sport, chiropractic could help get you out of pain and allow you to recover faster.

In addition to eating a nutrient-dense diet, getting good sleep and exercising, consider adding chiropractic to your winter regimen. Contact Roughan Chiropractic today to book an appointment!
